“Her Highness must have had her own recipe.”
“That’s right. It was really delicious. Besides, the Crown Prince liked it, didn’t he?”
Edon agreed with Melissa.
“But aren’t those dishes too unique?”
“It’s no problem because the crown prince likes it.”
Although it was true that the dishes made by the Crown Princess were so unique, Melissa was happy to see someone looking out for the Crown Prince.
“Well, you are right.”
Hans smiled softly.
When the Emperor returns, they may be interrogated about the reckless dismissal of the courtiers. But Melissa, Hans and Edon vowed to protect both of them from any harm.
As a wife of the crown prince who was cherished dearly by him and as the only person who managed to restore his buried happiness. The crown prince’s people unanimously considered Ancia as their own master.
One of the maid who used to aid Blake was also laid-off under Ancia’s order. She had acted sweet and gentle, yet after Blake was forced down from the crown prince’s position. Her gentle demeanor turned hundred eighty degrees.
The black inscription that was written on his skin, she would call it ugly and hideous. Her countenance would turned into disgust at the sight of him. Recalling the treacherous maid, Ancia’s blood would boil in anger.
Even those who sympathize or feel pity for Blake are reluctant to come directly and touch him. Because they think the curse is contagious.
There is no guarantee that switching to another maid will not repeat the original work, so I decided to help Blake’s bath.
“Your Highness, from now on I’ll help you take a bath.”
Blake, who was reading a book, raised his head and tried to escape. I knew he would react like this, so I held his shoulders firmly.
“Go to the bathroom, please.”
“No! What if you get infected by the curse!”
“What if you become unlucky!”
‘When you see or touch the sentence of the curse, the curse is passed on or that person will becomes unhappy.’
Due to such false rumors, the owner of the curse was not able to come outside and was immediately thrown away to a southern island.
Blake was also deprived of his crown prince position and had to go to a southern island as soon as the curse sentence appears, but thanks to the strong opposition of the emperor, he was able to stay in a faraway palace.
“I’m not going to be unhappy. That’s a false rumor, so ignore it.”
“Maybe it’s not just a rumor!”
Did you keep the rumor in mind? Sure, in the original book, the author said that a person would be unhappy if he was with them for a long time, but I didn’t really think so.
“I’ve already seen your face and held your hand.”
“It’s small. The sentences on the body are big!”
“It’s a false rumor. Come on, let’s go!”
I pulled his hand, but Blake didn’t budge.
Blake was weak and small because of the curse. I was two years older and ahead of his height and strength yet, there was nothing I could do when the boy made up his mind to hold on.
“Your Grace, come on.”
“No! I’m hideous!”
Blake burst into tears, shouting.
Rumors are just an excuse, and in fact you didn’t want to show me the curse sentences on your body. Initially, I thought I would be sick because I already saw the sentences on his face and hands, but it was a mistake. It wasn’t long after Ancia tried to kill herself because she was surprised to see his face. No wonder Blake was worried.
“You will hate me when you sees it!”
Blake cried, curling up his small body. I squatted down in front of him.
“Your Highness, don’t look down and look at me.”
Blake slowly raised his head. His originally red eyes were redder.
“I told you before. You’re not a monster. And if you’re a monster, then you think I’m a monster too?”
“Ancia is different, you’re so pretty!”
I feel happy to hear that the groom think I was pretty. I smiled and stroked the curse sentence that covered his left face. Blake shivered.
“It’s not hideous. And touching it doesn’t make me unhappy. I’m happy every day after marrying you.”
“Yes, I am happy that you are my husband.”
“Me too, me too, I’m happy to marry Ancia.”
Blake fell into my arms. I gave him a big hug, too.
“Your Highness, don’t say such a thing again.”
“I’ll be mad if you say that again next time.”
“I won’t. Don’t be mad.”
“Then shall we take a bath now?”
At that moment Blake flinched and shook his head.
“What is it?”
The moment I heard the small voice, I burst into laughter.
“Oh my, were you embarrassed?”
“Do-don’t make fun of me!”
“I’m not teasing you. You’re really cute.”
Usually we take a bath with our private parts covered. Moreover, royal family and aristocrats were treated so naturally from the moment they were born, so it was more amazing to be so conscious and ashamed.
Above all, he will become second male lead of the R-19 novel.
“You’re making fun of me!”
“How did you manage to be so embarrassed?”
“It was Ancia, so….”
“Am I the only one who you discriminates?”
“Otherwise, come on in.”
I pulled Blake’s hand lightly. Blake nodded reluctantly and walked into the bathroom.
“Don’t be surprised!”
He was afraid I’d be surprised to see his body even before he undressed.
“You can’t hate me for seeing this!”
“I’ll get really mad if you say that again.”
“You can’t leave!”
I had to tell him not to worry, but he couldn’t stop talking. I must leave before Blake becomes an adult. Only Diana, the heroine, can free his curse. My role is to keep this little boy from getting hurt, and then step down in time.
“Why aren’t you answering? Ancia, are you going to leave me?”
Tears filled his crimson eyes again. I quickly smiled broadly.
“Where would I go leaving my cute husband?”
Another white lie.
“Yes, I am. This is my home.”
I wiped the tears in his eyes with my hands.
“Come on, take a bath.”
Blake hesitated and took off his clothes with a carefully wrenched hand. I strained my facial muscles. Blake will be hurt if I show even a little surprise.
When he took off his shirt, a small body covered in the sentences of the curse was revealed. He was only eight years old, and the sentence covered half of his body.
Blake noticed, and took my hand, worried that I might run away again or jump into the lake. I smiled softly.
“How can you be so skinny? I think I look fat because my lower body is too thin. I should lose weight from now on.”
“Don’t do that! Ancia has to eat a lot!”
“Eat a lot?”
“Yes, you’re still skinny.”
“I’m bigger than you are though?”
He looked up at my top of the head and pouted his lips.
“I’ll grow up soon!”
“I’m going to grow up, too.”
“I’ll grow up faster!”
I laughed when I saw Blake with a burning desire to win all of a sudden.
“Ok, I’ll look forward to it.”
“Yes! Look forward to it!”
“Come on, let’s get in the tub. You’re going to catch a cold.”
I led him into the bathtub.
Blake’s skin was soft. But the skin with the curse’s sentence on it was rough. It is said that whenever a sentence spreads, it is accompanied by pain in the flesh. How hard and painful this young boy must have felt?
When my hand touched the curse, Blake trembled.
“Don’t do it. What if the curse….”
I can’t completely lift Blake’s curse when I’m not the heir of light. But I stroked the black sentences engraved on his back, hoping that with the small power of light I had, it would ease his pain.
“Oh no, my husband has a big tummy.”
I was surprised seeing his fierce resistance. I tried to apologize, but seeing Blake puffing up his cheeks cutely made me want to tease him a little.
“It’s because I ate a lot!”
“That’s what causes you to have a big tummy.”
“I’m not going to eat any more!”
“Then you’ll still be smaller than me.”
Blake’s eyes grew bigger, as if he realized something important.
“Your Highness, i’m kidding, your tummy is not big. So, eat a lot. That’s how you grow up.”
“Yes! I’ll eat a lot and grow up fast!”
“Yes, grow up fast.”
Blake was so thin that I was worried.
Blake loved Korean food. I didn’t say it was delicious because I made it myself, but it really suited his taste.
Blake loved it so much that I enjoyed making it, Hence I became more greedy to make a full-fledged meal.
I’ll make a furnace and a cauldron!
There was a limit to making Korean food with only a stove and oven.
